I guess this mostly applies to those of us in the US, but the day before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel days of the year, so who's taking part and traveling ahead of the holiday? Feel free to share your itineraries below   . I just got up and I'm about to make to drive from Tucson up to Sky Harbor for DL PHX-MSP-MKE.

Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

Moi. I usually travel on Thanksgiving day (that's what I did the past couple of years of undergrad), but this year it was better to travel today.

I'm also connecting in MSP today, but only have 39 minutes there... Unless I miss my flight, which may happen due to fog in Chicago. You never know how bad the accumulated delays can get in the next few hours.

I'm flying AS SEA-SJC tomorrow (Thanksgiving Day) at 12:15pm.

Should be an easy smooth trip, not having a connection in a busy Midwest airport (e.g. prone to possible weather problems). At one time years ago, it seemed like I could never get an on-time AS flight. Now the last several years, I can't remember the last time any of my many AS flights weren't on time. Keep up the great work guys.

Nonrevving DFW-MKE tonight. Should have no problem securing a seat, even in spite of the fog that was messing things up earlier today...

I'll probably come back to DFW on Friday evening, since I don't feel like taking any chances as flights get busier during the weekend.



B-52s don't take off. They scare the ground away.

I did GFK-MSP-BDL today. Boy I haven't seen MSP so packed ever. It was a madhouse. Just barely made my connection too. My fault on that though. Should have booked a longer connection. Wish you all safe travels and a great holiday!

PHX-MSP-CVG today. No issues whatsoever, except the person in front of me was pissing off a bunch of people. Lots of yelling. I didn't mind; I was loosing myself to some Finntroll   

Happy Turkey Day

Not today, but flying HA50 tomorrow HNL-JFK, then onward to BOS.

lather, rinse, repeat on Sunday in the opposite direction...

Wow, looks like a lot of people were flying through MSP. It definitely had a busy feel to it when I was there.

PHX-MSP-CVG today.


Which flight out of PHX were you on? I was on the 12:20 PM.

The one after, at 2:30.

If I didn't have a japanese test to take, I'd have been on that flight.

On Wednesday Nov 21 I did Frankfurt to Dallas/Fort Worth on American. We arrived about 50 minutes early due to favorable headwinds. The flight load was nowhere near full; great for nonreving!
